The results are in! This fall we collected over $400 worth of Box Tops. The top earning classes were Mr. Likpe's fifth grade class, Mrs. Linton and Mrs. Gilleltte's third grade classes. The winning classes have won a treat, that will be available in the coming weeks. Thank you to all who participated in this important fundraiser. Keep collecting for our final Box Top contest of the school year, February 10-21.
Also, changes are coming to the way the Box Tops program works. Traditional Box Tops are being phased out and replaced with the new Digital Box Top. To clip a digital Box Top, parents will need to download the Box Top app and scan store receipts within 14 days of purchase. Shopping online? Once you create your Box Top account you can forward an email copy of your receipt that contains a Box Top product to firstname.lastname@example.org. Earnings will then be automatically sent to Winchester. Any questions email Erin at email@example.com
